    Thanks Dan and to all the others that have placed their orders... this is shaping up nicely!

    As for the fuel line quick release you can find them at good prices over at McMaster-Carr www.mcmaster.com


    I run these hand made CPC connectors that I used to build. They work fantastic and are both strong and tucked away. They were pretty labor intensive to hand build, so I gave CJ the rights to build them a couple of years back. He started the project but put the whole thing on the back burner due to the difficulty of cutting the release button channel. I suggest contacting CJ and giving him some shit about being a quitter and all... :lol3

    I understand we are lengthening the fuel line, but why can we not just use the existing quick disconnect?

    You can use the original QD. But if you want to make your tank much easier to remove for service, you'll install QD's at the petcocks so you don't need to remove the crossover line. I also recommend mounting the fuel pump to the engine mount near it's stock location. Then you won't need to disconnect the fuel pump either. On my bike, which is fuel injected, I've removed the fuel pump and eliminated both the fuel gauge and horn. I can now remove my tank in under 20 seconds. This makes servicing a breeze...

    Very trick. Love that it facilitates the death of a truly horrible seat. :jose

    awesome looking tank Ken, well done.

    Now: you either have to start making sexy looking products for the ADV as well, or I'm getting an SE!!! :lol3

    good luck with it

    Ken,

    Can fuel level be determined by any other color other than natural?

    You can just barely see the fuel level through the orange, but you need to catch the sunlight just right...

    Tell me about it. The pattern shop insists on having my SE on hand for fittings, so I'm without my favorite bike for 6+ weeks!

    No, we're still in preproduction. But the colors will match KTM's much like IMS tanks do...
